Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Dorothy began singing and touring with her family at the age of eight. In 1956 she moved to Chicago, Illinois and was soon singing with such notables as the great Mahalia Jackson, the world-renowned Caravans, and the incomparable Reverend James Cleveland.

Evangelist Norwood launched her solo career in 1964 and recorded her first album, "Johnny and Jesus", on Savoy Records. It brought her national attention and was certified Gold. She followed it up with the stirring "Denied Mother", which also went Gold, and earned her the title "World's Greatest Storyteller".

In her 36+ years in the Gospel Music Industry, Dorothy has recorded over 40 albums -- five of which were certified as GOLD. She has also received numerous awards and citations, including five Grammy nominations.

As renowned as she is in America, so is she in Europe. She has performed in Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, and England. Believing that "If the mountain won't come to you, then you must go to the mountain..., Dorothy agreed to do a 30 state American tour with Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones in 1972. She was able to spread the Gospel in a mission field that was virtually closed to gospel artists.

In February 1991, Evangelist Norwood signed with Malaco Records and recorded "Live with the Northern California GMWA Mass Choir. It was an immediate hit, with songs like "Victory Is Mine", and "Somebody Prayed For Me". It reached the #1 position on Billboard's Top Forty after only 7 weeks.

Her second project, "Better Days Ahead", earned a Stellar Award nomination as well as a Grammy nomination. Her current release, "LIVE with the Georgia Mass Choir" is setting souls on fire across the country, and quickly rising up the gospel charts.

Whether she is with the choir, or her own group, this Gospel Storyteller has an amazing capacity to offer her gifts to God in a most refreshing manner. Because of this, she has become one of the most sought after Gospel artists of today.
